If you missed out on ‘On the Roof with Q’ this summer, no fear – Le Chalet will be transforming Selfridges’ rooftop into a “destination winter playground.”
Le Chalet will transport customers high above the streets of London to a wintry retreat poised on top of our favourite department store. The restaurant will serve a delicious Alpine inspired barbeque menu alongside a crab and shellfish bar. Situated on the terrace will be a log cabin, alongside a hot chocolate cocktail bar to ensure guests escape the wintry chill.
Think traditional ski chalet with wintry ferns, timber branches, and soft low lighting entwined with branches throughout. Romantic, huh?
Tables and relaxed seating are tucked away behind winter ferns to provide an intimate and laidback atmosphere. *DATE NIGHT*
The menu will be inspired by Le Chalet’s sister restaurant, Q Grill and will include hearty dishes to reflect the season.
Starters include; Cornish crab served with pickled celeriac and Colman’s mustard, Peppered tuna with wasabi avocado, and Endive and pear salad with shaved pecorino and hazelnuts. Diners can then choose from Spit roasted suckling pig with apple and black pudding fritters, Buttermilk crispy chicken with blue cheese fondue, Lobster macaroni and a selection of the finest seafood alongside roasted roots with honey and thyme and Broccoli with chilli and garlic.
The dessert menu includes; Eggnog snow egg, Apple streusel with lashings of custard, Black forest cheesecake and Brandy and vanilla rice pudding.
To warm the cockles, Le Chalet will have a hot chocolate cocktail bar, ‘choctails’ include; ‘El Dorado’ a delicious concoction of El Dorado, cinnamon and hot chocolate, ‘Nutella’; Hazelnut with Amaretto, dark chocolate and hot chocolate and ‘Double Choc’ a blend of Courvoisier Exclusif, white chocolate and hot chocolate. These drinks can be enjoyed on the winter chalet porch, accompanied with a Cigar from a specially crafted selection by James J. Fox. Pimping.
On the other end of the spectrum they’ll also have ‘The Juicery Après-Ski Menu’, (we love The Juicery!). Feel smug while supping on Superfood hot chocolate, Espresso maca, Superpower espresso shot and Superfood teas.
Nathan Herrmann, Selfridges Food and Restaurants Director comments: “We wanted to create an enchanted winter wonderland on the roof of Selfridges this Christmas. Customers to the roof will be greeted with a restaurant inspired by traditional ski lodges serving seasonal wintry dishes and an exceptional Hot Chocolate Bar. We are sure this winter wonderland will be a huge success with our customers looking for a truly magical dining experience”
